My dog got attacked 😩


The neighbors dog, they used to play when he was a puppy, they have played less as they both aged. I believe my pup is 2 years older actually, so they played when the other was a pup.

Anyway, the other dog hasn’t been loose to play in awhile, at first, he ran over and started to play but somehow they ended up fighting. The other dog had his throat and I freaked, it took both dads to get them apart. My poor baby was traumatized. We had to take him to a weekend vets an hour and half away. He had a drain and a lot of stitches put in, he had to be watched so he didn’t itch, he has had to have antibiotics and pain pills twice a day, warm cloth to clean all the stuff up, I think I have been traumatized as much as him!

He got the drain out but still has the stitches, we tried putting socks on his feet so he won’t itch but he just rips them off. We can’t put anything on him like his collar or a cone because it’s his neck.

He still shakes like crazy any time we even look at it. He has just started to act like himself again, it’s been a week today. I’m afraid we aren’t keeping it clean enough or he will scratch a stitch out.

The redness at the top worries me as well.

Wiggle fun


First time I bought a wiggle waggle ball they sent a cheap thin plastic that broke as soon as he looked at it!!!! At Home Depot I saw an original and had to get it! He loves that thing, hasn’t gotten a hole in it yet at all which is amazing with his chewing habit! He chases it around and throws it up in the air.

I highly recommend one for your dog!!! The noises change a lot depending on the directions it is going.

This is Atlas approved!!!

2 months????


I had someone tell me the beginning of August that their dog was sick, acting funny and not eating. We went through checking this and that but my final advice was to take him to the vet.

Yesterday I talked to them again and they said he died! I was surprised and of course asked how? They said they had just made an appointment for the vets! It was some kind of infection they said.

Two months that poor dog was sick. I mean did he suffer? Was he in pain? How could they neglect him that long like that? It broke my heart to hear that. Now my thought was to call someone for they still have 5 other dogs! I don’t think there is anyone though. We don’t have animal control here. I’m conflicted. What do you think???

Kitten!


This is Cloe. We just couldn’t let her stay were she lived. They had ten cats and one litter of 8 kittens. Small, malnourished and living in filth. As we helped a PALS shelter gather them this little girl won my heart so after some time at the shelter being fixed and brought out of danger I brought her home. 2 hours and she is now sleeping in the window content as can be. Lol my pup was over excited and she never met a dog before but I am hoping they will become friends. Selina the 4 year old we brought home from the shelter months ago is not very happy about it but I am also hoping that will change.

Salina


On Clear out the shelter days here in Maine hubby decided I needed a new kitten. I got a dog, Atlas, he turned into a daddy’s boy, it’s been a year since I lost my beautiful Myah so he said it’s time. After a couple places we were about to leave when he started to play with this little girl. Now you need a kitty young before age of 1 to ensure the dog and cat can become friends, I insist on a female, and I wanted a white and or grey one. The shelter brought her out, 4 years old and black. I pointed out the age and the worker and my husband had a quick talk about her being fine with dogs and next thing I know we are adopting her!! Ummmmm, now wait a minute! I thought I was getting a new friend, not my husband!! I have adapted and she is friendly and crazy funny. She does ok with the dog, sometimes rubbing against him and freaking him out, other times she swats at him and hisses. Woman. Lol I guess she can stay.

Tornado named Atlas


Reading a recent post from someone I admire made me realize I had not posted about my dog since we adopted him. Atlas was a rescue from Florida, very small and long with a head too big for his body when we met him, but he was our kind of crazy, so he became one of us. Bassadors are half Bassett hound and half Labrador, so short legs, long body! Bassett hounds are the most stubborn to train and he is almost two and still chews everything!!!He hates his nails being cut so has ripped one pair of my bed sheets running around going crazy and my hardwood floors have suffered the most!

At the same time with all the stress comes the love and unconditional friendship, he makes me feel safe when my husband is away, he has helped me with getting outside more and being able to leave the house easier on my own. He is ours and we may never be done with his training but he wants to learn and he seems happy.
